    Pregnancy must haves... Those little things that you couldnt live without

    Hi girls thought this might be a fun / helpful idea to share things that have helped us along the way during pregnancy .. I'll start with..

    Rennie - has been an essential for me over the last few weeks with easing heartburn

    Hot water bottle .. I pretty much use mine every night to ease my back pain

    Boots glycerin honey and lemon lictus .. For shifting a sore throat .. Actually tastes good too,

    Sanctuary mum to be oil - I've used this throughout my pregnancy and so far have no stretch marks ( hopefully won't jinx it now :/)

    Mypregnancyapp for iPhone- I have loved using this app to keep track of baby size and development, I also use it to track my weight and any upcoming midwife / hospital appointments

    Bottle green spiced berry cordial .. This stuff is seriously lush I drink it hot as an alternative to tea to try and reduce my caffeine intake , they do lots of flavours but the spiced berry is perfect for winter really warming and fruity !

    That's all I can think of so far but I'm sure I will think of more to add to the list!

    Would love to hear all your pregnancy must haves

    I'd have to say a pack of biscuits/crackers/something plain-ish to nibble on by the bed for when i get that 'feel sick because i am hungry' feeling at 3/4am! Also helped at the beginning of pregnancy with nausea.

    2. (My personal opinion) - WINTER!!! I'm so grateful for chilly air lol I get sooooooo hot it's ridiculous! I could not be without winter

    3. Rennies for heartburn

    Another vote for Rennies! And gaviscon, horrible as it is it really does work when nothing else will.

    Toast, miracle food for easing nausea.

    Mum & Me room spray, such a lovely relaxing scent for nights when you can't sleep.

    My bouncy ball for easing hip pain.

    Lots of extra pillows - see above!

    Decaf teabags

    A good supply of Lush products for relaxing baths

    Another vote for Gaviscon, even though it was vile!!

    Salt! In the early days when I was constantly nauseous it's all I wanted.

    I think it must be - I have dried lavender in a pot next to my bed/Seth's basket in the hope that will help too. If nothing else it smells great! xxx

    It's lovely and I swear it helped me sleep well! My sleep was awful during my pregnancy with the usual discomfort plus SPD so anything that helped was gold dust. They do a foot spray too which is amazing for big swollen feet and ankles xxx

    My list of pregnancy must-haves so far comprises of:

    *Ranitidine indigestion tablets- rennie's and gaviscon don't work for me, but these do. Great for heartburn

    *Lots of pillows- I have a Dreamgenii pregnancy pillow plus a couple of extra ones to sleep with! Plus I have a wedge, which I go from Mothercare for 10, and really helps with backache.
    Esp good if you have a sitting down job.

    *Yogurts- really helped relieve nausea and heartburn

    *Digestive biscuits- fab for morning sickness

    * I second Missy with decaf teabags- gone right off coffee and drinking tea like its water lol!
